Summer brunch is all about foreign flavours and unusual food combinations. While you might not find too many food trucks to satisfy a street food craving in Belfast, here’s a list of great restaurants that are serving their food street-style this summer.
25 Bruce Street
Since its arrival, Slums has served up Mexican street food in value deal burrito bowls and wraps. Fast service and wide a wide variety of ingredients are the appeal to street foodies.
61-63 Dublin Road
While Kitch Bistro is on the pricier side, lunch options are inspired with Indonesian or Southern American spice. Burgers are topped with onions, crispy bacon, relish, pulled pork or a variety of pickles, and fish dishes are inspired by Indonesian flavours. A great place to pick up a burger and chips.
19-27 Chichester Street & 67-69 Botanic Avenue
The popular burrito chain has reached cult status since arriving to Belfast, in 2007. Serving fajitas and burritos, customers choose their own fillings in bowl or wrap. While the lines may be long, the flavour doesn’t suffer; and boojum will likely be a Mexican favourite in the long future.
3 Hill Street
Tucked into the Cathedral Quarter, Yardbird (which you’ll find just above The Dirty Onion) serves a range of street styled chicken and sides. Featuring live music, comedy and rustic outside seating, this is the perfect summer barbecue stop.
467 Ormeau Road
This bistro may look traditional, but their sambal chicken and tandoori prawns make it onto the street food list. These Indian inspired flavours are paired with traditional sandwiches and fries to make a great street-styled brunch.
92 Stranmillis Road
This Stranmillis favourite serves up Indian and Mexican street flavours; in a range of quesadillas, tacos, four choices of nacho plates and pulled beef sandwiches. You can also have your breakfast served street-style in a spicy breakfast torte.
7. BISTRO 401
This bistro shares its home with the Titanic Museum, and includes some foreign inspired options. Dahl curries and bratwurst sausages have a street-inspired feel, served in a quality restaurant. Burgers include stacks of pickles, onion rings and spiced meat; and look as interesting as they taste.
12 Callender Street
Featuring street food that smoked slow and served fast, Bubbacue is a perfect example of Belfast’s street food culture in terms of substance and speed. Take your pick from Halloumi, Pulled Pork, BBQ Chicken, Spicy Sausage and Beef Brisket, then add your sides and dressings.
